It was sitting in a pile of clothes and all I saw was the shiny yellow quilted skirt, yet still it had to be mine.
I thought it just needed some simple length adjustment...
...but then I found something else!!
Check out the pits!!
They're completely worn out. Completely! So, on top of the length tweaking...
...there's some pit tackling to handle as well. I needed to take in the body a bit, so I worked on the arms as well, stitching right next to the worn out fabric.
Length trims came next...
I cut. I pinned. I sewed.
New hem in minutes!
With a belt to create a bit more shape at the waist and some ankle boots, my dress was ready for dinner!
I love the different shades of yellow on the skirt portion! I stuck to neutrals when it came to my accessories, however pairing this with black shoes and a black belt could give it a totally different vibe.
It's still rather mild out, so a jacket wasn't needed! (I'm heading to the cold soon though, so I'll feel the chill that some of you are experiencing now!)
And, the best part...the pits!! Not see-through anymore. Not worn out anymore. Score.
Fun and comfortable was the name of the game tonight.
Just a little mending, gives a completely new look to this vintage frock!
